Day After Christmas Sales

Saving Saturday: Frugal Ways to Save Money

 Day After Christmas Sales

Day After Christmas Sales

Now that Christmas is over, my thoughts begin to wander to the day after Christmas sales.  You know, the day when the stores deep discount just about everything they didn’t sell before Christmas.  The best thing about day after Christmas sales is they generally last until the inventory is gone rather than just one day like Black Friday.  That’s a good thing because I won’t be able to make it to the stores the day after Christmas.  However, I am already planning my shopping trip the weekend after Christmas.

You may wonder … why it is frugal to shop at day after Christmas sales?Continue reading

My Dog is an Alpo Dog, Is Yours?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ALPO® Brand Dog Food . All opinions are 100% mine.

This is Sookie, the family YorkiePom, and spoiled brat. What is the best thing to feed your dog that has become your furry family member? We choose only the best, so we go with ALPO Wet Dog Food! I have recently written a few posts introducing you to the ALPO Wet Dog Food we got to try, and telling you what my furry friend thinks about itAnd what’s not to love? ALPO Wet Dog Food is 100% balanced for all life stages and is only made with quality (and yummy according to Sookie) ingredients! Check out all the goodness that is ALPO Wet Dog Food on their Nutrition page.

These are 2 of Sookies favorite Alpo Wet Food flavors! Check out all the dog approved flavors ALPO offers.

So what are other dogs saying about ALPO Wet Dog Food?

The video above was made by fellow blogger Saved by Love Creations and it cracks me up because, like Sookie, you can tell that those dogs LOVE the Alpo Wet Dog Food! Sookie almost knocked me over the first time I put the Alpo Wet Dog Food in her food bowl. So I think between our 3 super cutie furry family members, that would be 6 paws up!

Think that’s funny? See what else our focus group has to say about our favorite blogger dogs

Aldi Five Things You Need to Know



Well, I think I need to add 5 things to my original list of 10 things you need to know about Aldi.  I went shop
ping there and here are the things I wished someone told me.


Aldi Tips

1) You will see that they have a great line of organic products.

2) You need a quarter or you are not getting a cart They lock them up and only a quarter will release them.

3) You get your quarter back when you return your cart That is why the lady didn’t give me her cart instead she scurried past me and locked it up to retrieve her quarter.

4) They do not bag your groceries They put them back in your cart with out bags. You should not bring all your groceries out to your car without having them in bags. That is what the huge counter is for behind the cashier. If you chose to do this like I did. Then you will be the subject of everyone staring at you wondering why you didn’t see the huge counter that is supposed to be used for this task.

5) When you leave the store they have the preview for next week If I lived near the Aldi store then I would go get that flyer so I know what not to buy this week and what to wait to buy during the following week. (I live 45 minutes away but I found that I saved enough to do 3 weeks of grocery shopping for $250.00)
